    Great day on the island with a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Sarg Mark was the best guide we could hope for giving us a lot of info on the history of the island. The pace was great: enough time to enjoy the different spots but not too long so we can see as much as possible. I definitely recommend (traveled with one 11 year old boy who had a great day).
